Truth for Men is a fragrance very dear to me, given that 9 years ago I received it as a birthday gift from my parents. Due to the fact that I’m a very difficult person when it comes to birthday gifts, a fragrance represents something that is a sure win, given that there are so many that I like, and yet so few that I actually can afford.
Truth for Men was introduced in 2002 as an aromatic fougere fragrance, dedicated to the powerful and sexy men. Back in 2003, the perfume was already for a couple of months on the market when I sniffed for the first time and I just knew I discovered a new addition to my wardrobe. The construction of Truth for Men is based on the green notes from the heart, balanced by spicy and woody notes from the first and last chapter.
Truth for Men opens on a very spicy pepper note, followed pretty soon by a mid development that contains cardamom, basil and sandalwood. In the dry down, you will recognize the elegant aroma of patchouli combined with red cedar.
The bottle of Truth for Men benefits from a stylish masculine shape, while the transparent green hue of the liquid brings to mind the waters from a lagoon; the glass is topped by a silver spray stopper that forms a single body with the bottle. If there weren’t any entries on my rather modest “to buy” list, Truth for Men would have been on that list, as an extraordinary fragrance for the spring and summer period.
